Successful child actors don’t always turn out to be such successful adult actors, which is why it was so nice to see Kirsten Dunst go from her breakout roles as a precocious vampire and the littlest March sister to grow up and become a fabulous Queen of France, among other things. She’s worked steadily as a youth and adult in all kinds of roles, but we, of course, celebrate her historical costume movie and TV features here.
